Paris 1950
PARIS 1950, THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE BUILDING
Under the direction of
. SIMON TEXIER, Maître de conférences à l'Université de Paris Sorbonne

The 2500 buildings built in the 1950s represent an entity which contributed largely to the definition and modernisation of the city.

The 1950s was the last decade to see large scale development of “urban” buildings and was distinguished by a sense of tension of a city caught up in between two thought processes.


This sense of tension gave rise to remarkable buildings which were perceptibly contemporary with characteristics starkly in contrast to our sparse knowledge of the time.

This book offers an opportunity to review these works created by little known architects with a factbook which sheds light onto the features of these buildings.

More than 300 reference buildings included.
